The 'FUROSHIKI' is a piece of cloth that has been used by the Japanese people since Nara period (8c) as the world's first ECO-BAG. 

In front of Hotel de Ville Paris, we've built a temporary pavilion as a giant 'FUROSHIKI gift' from Tokyo.  Inside, there was an introduction of the 'HISTORY of FUROSHIKI', installation of 'FORM of FUROSHIKI', video projection showing ‘USE of FUROSHIKI’, an exhibition of ‘ART of FUROSHIKI' designed by French and Japanese artists and designers, and finally a workshop-style corner where visitors learned how to wrap with the 'FUROSHIKI'.
